Is This The Back of the iPhone 5?
The iPhone 5 is one of the most anticipated pieces of hardware out there, which is why I get excited every time I see a new leak of some piece that is supposed to be part of the iPhone 5.
Today, I have another collection of iPhone 5 parts to share, the most interesting being the back of the iPhone 5, which is plastic and white.
These new iPhone 5 parts come from MacPost and combined with everything we’ve already seen, could be assembled into half of an iPhone 5.
The part leaks add to the rumors that we will see an iPhone 5 announcement in September and an iPhone 5 release date in October.
The most notable thing to me about this leak is that it gives us our first look at the reported back of the iPhone 5. It is hard to say for certain, but it looks like the back is made of plastic and has a slight curve to it, much like some of the iPhone 5 mock ups we shared this morning.
The iPhone mockup is dated to June 7th, 2011 and has a label that marks it as an Engineering Verification Test model. The unit has a N94 on the back which has been associated with previous iPhone 5 leaks.
This leak doesn’t show off a lot of the iPhone 5 rumors we had heard, which could mean it will be to the iPhone 4S or cheaper iPhone 4 that is rumored to arrive.
MacPost has a collection of additional images showing you all types of iPhone 5 internals.
What do you think of this leak?

No. Doesnt take a genius to figure that out.

That looks a lot like a cheap knock-off white iPhone 4 back that I purchases on ebay for my iPhone 4 a few months ago….

obvious back of white iPhone 4 is obvious.
